Now let’s dive deep into niche selection for low content books.
What is a niche?
In a nutshell, the niche is a collection of closely related keywords. For instance, if you want to make a coloring book then the closely related keywords would be coloring books for kids, coloring books for adults, coloring books for men, coloring books for women.
A niche can be a common interest, hobby, profession, job title, health-related issue, and a common problem in the community!
There are so many ways to find niches and the same applies low content books as well. In this post, we will be looking at some of the most common and useful ways to find a niche for low content books!
Before looking at ways to find a niche for your low content books, you need to keep in mind some rules for niche selection.
Looking At Demand
Below creating a low content book, you need to determine the demand for your book/niche. You need to make sure that a handful of people are actively searching for that particular book on amazon. Don’t worry, it’s really easy.
Just type your book title or main keyword in the amazon search bar and hit enter. Next, open the first 5 to 6 six books excluding the sponsored ones in new tabs, and scroll down to the book details section.
As you can see in the screenshot below, there is a Best Seller Rank # 305 in Books. What that means is, this specific book is ranking at #305 in amazon’s book store. Obviously, the book ranked at no. 1 is the best-selling book in the overall book store.
So, doing niche research for your low content books, all the first 5 to 6 or even 10 books should have a BSR (Best Seller Ranks) under 300k. If your niche meets this first criterion, which is establishing a demand for your low content book, then move on to the next step and that is accessing the competition for a niche.
This is the 2nd and the most crucial step for doing niche selection for low or no content books to publish on amazon kdp. You need to look at the competition before creating your book. So, how to do that competition analysis?
It’s quite simple, just by looking at the total no. of search results for a particular search term or keyword. This no tells us the amount of other competing products. And you should aim for a number less than 1000.
Let’s suppose if you search for “Unicorn coloring Book” in the amazon search bar, you will notice no of search results for your keywords. As you can see in the below screenshot it says “over 3,000 results for unicorn coloring book”.
As this keyword has over 3000 search results, this is very competitive as per our niche research criteria. So, you need to skip this and search for some other Long Tail Keyword like “unicorn coloring book for kids ages 4-8”. Or you can skip this niche if all the keywords have more than 1000 search results.
Note: Don’t ever publish a book having any kind of copyrighted word in its title, subtitle, or cover. Otherwise, your kdp account will be banned due to copyright infringement.
Ways To Determine a Niche for Low Content Books
As I have shown earlier, you can do niche research on amazon itself and find really low competition niches. Or you can start your niche research out of amazon and then test those niches on amazon to establish both demand and competition.
